Gitanjali—song of offering—from the great master Tagore has already found its place among the world classiucs. This Nobel Prize winning work has been universally acclaimed for its simplicity, poetic beauty and mystical depths. Tagore uses rich images and symbols from nature—like the changing seasons, wind, flower, rain, river, day and night—to express joy, creativity, universal solidarity, and the yearning for communion with the divine. Human weakness and divine greatness are blended and beautifully presented in these touching verses. This edition includes W. B. Yeats’ introduction to the first edition of Tagore’s English rendering of this collection, a short introduction to each “poem” and thirty brilliant illustrations, all of which enhance the beauty and value of the book.
